Review quote

"The editors have succeeded in producing a very readable, basic textbook of current toxicologic pathology...The book provides many high quality, well labeled reproductions of light and electron micrographs...This book will be an excellent resource for graduate students in toxicology, pathology, and environmental health studies. It provides a thorough organ system based overview of current knowledge and fundamental principles of toxicologic pathology, devoid of the detailed treatment of descriptive morphology and mechanisms provided in reference texts."
--CHOICE
"...a very valuable toxicopathological reference source..."
--A.A. Seawright in AUSTRALIAN VETERINARY JOURNAL
